Pregnenalone is known as the "Feel Good" hormone. Dr.Ray Sahaelin describes it as "adding color, brightness and vision is clearer. Life just feels more beautiful when taking Pregnenalone"
Prenenalone is the first step in the synthesis from cholesterol to all the major sex hormones. It is the precursor to DHEA, Testosterone, Estrogens, Progesterone, Cortisol and others. Like all hormones, as we age pregnenalone levels decline. Physicians practicing Anti-Aging Medicine believe that replacement of pregnenalone to youthful levels is an important step in any anti-aging program. In published studies, pregnenalone has shown to be 100 times more effective for memory enhancement than any other hormone in lab animals.
If DHEA is known as the body energy converter, pregnenalone is known as a powerful brain energy converter, in improving the transmitting of messages from neuron to neuron, influencing positively short term memory.
Pregnenalone, together with DHEA are essential members of any anti-aging program and for protection of brain neurons in aging. Both if used together can be beneficial for:
  • Improves Energy, Eyesight, Youth & Vitality
  • Fights / Prevents osteoporosis
  • Improves Depression & Chronic Fatigue/Fibromyalgia
  • Improved Adrenal Fatigue & Balanced Cortisol Levels
  • Improved Thyroid Conversion Function
  • Enhanced Immune System Function
  • Prevents Osteoporosis & Cardiovascular Conditions
  • Improves Muscle Mass (increased growth hormone & testosterone)
  • Protects against Alzheimers & Dramatically Imroves Memory
  • Reduces Stress & Stress-related issues
  • Improved Energy & Stamina in Menopause
  • Improves Nerve Tissue Repair
  • Protects against Cancer & Cardiovascular Disease
  • Increases Fat Burning (thermogesis)
  • Improves Insulin Receptor Sensitivity in Diabetes & Metabolic Syndromes
Pregnenolone, which is the raw material for producing many of the hormones of stress and adaptation, was known as early as 1934, but for several years it was considered to be an "inert" substance. A reason for this belief is that it was first tested on healthy young animals. Since these animals were already producing large amounts of pregnenolone (in the brain, adrenal glands, and gonads), additional pregnenolone had no effect.
In the 1940s, pregnenolone was tested in people who were sick or under stress, and it was found to have a wide range of beneficial actions, but the drug industry never had much interest in it. Its very generality made it seem unlike a drug, and its natural occurrence made it impossible to patent. Thus, many synthetic variants, each with a more specialized action and some serious side effects, came to be patented and promoted for use in treating specific conditions. The drug companies created an atmosphere in which many people felt that each disease should have a drug, and each drug, a disease. The side effects of some of those synthetic hormones were so awful that many people came to fear them. For example, synthetic varieties of "cortisone" can destroy immunity, and can cause osteoporosis, diabetes, and rapid aging, with loss of pigment in the skin and hair, and extreme thinning of the skin.
Natural pregnenolone is present in young people of both sexes at a very high concentration, and one reason for the large amount produced in youth is that it is one of our basic defenses against the harmful side effects that an imbalance of even our natural hormones can produce. In excess, natural cortisone or estrogen can be dangerous, but when there is an abundance of pregnenolone, their side effects are prevented or minimized.
In a healthy young person or animal, taking even a large dose of pregnenolone has no hormone-like or drug-like action at all. It is unique in this way. But if the animal or person is under stress, and producing more cortisone than usual, taking pregnenolone causes the cortisone to come down to the normal level. After the age of 40 or 45, it seems that everyone lives in a state of continuous "stress," just as a normal part of aging. This coincides with the body's decreased ability to produce an abundance of pregnenolone.
When aging rats are given a supplement of pregnenolone, it immediately improves their memory and general performance. Human studies, as early as the 1940s, have also demonstrated improved performance of ordinary tasks. It is now known that pregnenolone is one of the major hormones in the brain. It is produced by certain brain cells, as well as being absorbed into the brain from the blood. It protects brain cells from injury caused by fatigue, and an adequate amount has a calming effect on the emotions, which is part of the reason that it protects us from the stress response that leads to an excessive production of cortisone. People feel a mood of resilience and an ability to confront challenges.
Many people have noticed that pregnenolone has a "face-lifting" action. This effect seems to be produced by improved circulation to the skin, and by an actual contraction of some muscle-like cells in the skin. A similar effect can improve joint mobility in arthritis, tissue elasticity in the lungs, and even eyesight. Many studies have shown it to be protective of "fibrous tissues" in general, and in this connection it was proven to prevent the tumors that can be caused by estrogen.
Pregnenolone is largely converted into two other "youth-associated" protective hormones, progesterone and DHEA. At the age of 30, both men and women produce roughly 30 to 50 mg. of pregnenolone daily. When taken orally, even in the powdered form, it is absorbed fairly well. One dose of approximately 300 mg (the size of an aspirin tablet) keeps acting for about a week, as absorption continues along the intestine, and as it is "recycled" in the body. Part of this long lasting effect is because it improves the body's ability to produce its own pregnenolone. It tends to improve function of the thyroid and other glands, and this "normalizing" effect on the other glands helps to account for its wide range of beneficial effects.
The latest technology is a new delivery method called "first pass technology". It uses Transdermal Liposomal Protected Delivery which in the past only sophistcated drug manufacturers have used in drug manufacture. It means transdermal lipisomal delivery through the skin or sublingual mucosa (mouth), by-passing the liver and being directly absorbed into the blood. It is much faster and much more effective route to the blood without stressing or damaging the liver, like oral pills will do over time. IMPORTANT NOTE: You should NEVER take hormones of any kind in a pill form since it stresses the liver and continual stress can develop hepatitis (liver inflammation) and even liver cancer over time. Sublingual and transdermal delivery methods are much better.
Lower doses are more effective with this type of delivery system also, saving money and producing superior results. THIS DELIVERY SYSTEM HELPS REDUCE OR ELIMINATE ANY SIDE EFFECTS OF THE ORAL PILL FORM WARNED ABOUT BY DR.SAHELIAN ON HIS WEBSITE.

Chronically Ill Patients should discuss it's use with a qualified healthcare provider. Starting slowly is always recommended.
High Risk Individuals should consult a qualified physician or healthcare provider prior to use.
It is not necessary to use it every day. 5 Days on, 2 off is one method some use. Some use it only a few days a week.
CAUTION: Dr.Ray Sahelian who wrote the book on Pregnenalone years ago, and has updated recommendations for its use and has reported side effects in the long term use of HIGH DOSE ORAL Pregnenalone including: heart palpatations and arrythymias; moodiness; etc. Check his website for more information. His stance is ultra conservative and other clinicians do not necessarily adhere to the same belief. For more information, do your own research. You can also get more information at Low Dose recommendations he gives are for ORAL products. Our product bypasses the liver and therefore most likely will not have any of the side effects when used appropriately. We recommend 5-20 mg. used several times per week based on the person's body weight.
